Deutsche Bahn AG is moving into the Gasometer on the EUREF campus in Berlin-Schöneberg by the end of 2023 on a total of 28,000 sqm and twelve floors. Around 2,000 employees from the digitalization division will work at the state-of-the-art office building. 800 of these jobs will be newly created.
Senator for Economic Affairs Ramona Pop: “The arrival of Deutsche Bahn is a huge asset for Berlin. DB’s “Digital Rail” stands for the future and sustainable mobility, as well as creates and secures a total of 2,000 jobs for Berlin. With numerous companies involved in the energy and mobility transition, the EUREF Campus is the place of the future for the green economy and thus the right place to locate. The “Digital Rail” will give this place of the future a new boost. It also puts the revitalization of the Gasometer on the agenda. The Gasometer combines innovation and tradition. The new tenant has this firmly in mind.”
Deutsche Bahn will largely house various business units under one roof at the Gasometer to pursue its digitalization strategy. These include the “Digital Rail Germany,” which will enable a completely new kind of control of rail operations by networking data from infrastructure and vehicles, as well as developments in the areas of AI, blockchain, and data lakes for the rail sector.
Reinhard Müller, EUREF AG CEO: “Deutsche Bahn is the perfect tenant for the Gasometer — the landmark of the EUREF Campus. Climate change demonstrates the urgency of cooperative development of new mobility concepts. Rail-based systems form the backbone of the mobility of tomorrow due to their high capacity: Intelligently extended to the front door, through autonomous electric buses, pedelecs, or air taxis.”
The Schöneberg Gasometer is located on the EUREF campus, which consists of various building complexes with new, ultra-modern buildings and renovated historic buildings.
Its redesign is based on the historical image of the telescopic tank formerly ascending and descending inside the structure. The predominantly glass facade will feature a translucent louvre construction in front that matches the historic materials and color scheme.
A roof terrace is being built on the top floor of the new building, which is open to the public – including a view of Berlin from a height of around 66 meters.
